Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?! Release Trailer
Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?! sticks to its strengths, keeping true to their time management roots and nailing those parodies. That tutorial battle took me a little longer than I thought it would, but eventually I got the hang of it. There was some trial and error during the first mission as I had to switch my brain from thinking this was A Weapon Shop?!. But once I put on my Mal Reynolds suspenders, it was smooth sailing. Now I'm the best damn pilot in the galaxy, zipping all over the place blasting baddies out of the sky. I even have a furry sidekick. This could be your life, too, since Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?! is out now on the PlayStation 4.
If you're looking for a silly and relaxing time, this is your game. On the other hand, this is not the game for someone looking for great gameplay or a compelling story. The creativity in the world and its characters is where this game shines, but that shine will only reach so far. I wish it was a twice baked potato, yet sadly this is half-baked.
Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?! Is a very cute game that balances turn based strategy with lots of fun humour, pop culture references, and witty puns. At times if you spend all your money and resources early on it can becoming frustrating and repetitive to build them back up (especially when you face the challenging 'boss' levels) but I definitely enjoyed the quirkiness of the storyline. It really is what made this game great fun!
